When your service starts, ends and your cancellation rights 3.1 – We will be deemed to have accepted your order to purchase a Voucher when we email you to accept it, at which point a contract will come into existence between you and us. If we are unable to accept your order for whatever reason, we will inform you of this in writing and not charge you for the Voucher. 3.2 –  It is your responsibility to ensure your details are correct and up-to-date. 3.3 – Once you have purchased the Voucher, the Service subsequently starts on the earlier of (i) when you access it using the voucher code issued on the relevant login page or (ii) when you enter the correct password when logging on at selected sites.  3.4 – The length of time that you will be allowed to access the Service is dependant on the Voucher purchased and is subject to your compliance with these terms and conditions.  3.5 – Your agreement ends when the voucher you have purchased expires unless terminated earlier pursuant to clause 12 of this agreement. If Vouchers are not used or only part used, the Voucher (or remaining balance) will expire 12 months from the date of purchase. 3.6 – Voucher codes will only be valid for the time period to which the Voucher relates, starting at the date/time of purchase.

5. Refunds

5.1 – In the event of an Outage, provided that the Outage is not related to either the personal equipment of the Customer or any acts or omissions of the Customer, we may refund the Customer an amount up to the equivalent of the cost of the Service lost as a result of such Outage (e.g. if the Customer purchases a 3 Day Voucher but experiences a 1 Day Outage, the Customer may be refunded for 1 days’ Service).  5.2 – In the event that a Customer is having a technical issue (other than an Outage) and requests in writing a refund within two weeks of the date of the issue, Camping Connect will investigate each issue on an individual basis. More information can be found here. Refunds are given at our absolute discretion and depending upon the specific circumstances and results of our investigation.  5.3 – We reserve the right to decline a refund if we have not been notified in writing of the issue within two weeks. Camping Connect does not offer any compensation above the agreed amount which will be calculated by reference to the Voucher purchased and the value of the service lost in relation to the Voucher. For example if you purchased a 48 hour voucher and used 24 hours of access without issue, your maximum refund entitlement would be 50% of the cost of the Voucher. 5.4 – Any refunds payable by Camping Connect shall be paid using the bank details used by you to originally purchase the Voucher. We shall endeavour to make such refund within 10 working days from the date that we agree in writing that a refund is due and payable. Such refunds may however be subject to deductions in the event that we have already started providing the Services, in which case you must pay us for the Services provided and a pro rata deduction shall be made to the refund. 5.5 – CampingConnect reserves the right to issue an additional Voucher in lieu of a refund payable under this clause 5.

Sometimes we may be unable to provide the Service because of something beyond our reasonable control, which may include: lightning, flood, severe weather, fire, explosion, terrorist activities, anything done by Government or other competent authority or industrial disputes.

12. If you break this agreement

    12.1. – In the event of:         12.1.1 – a serious misuse described in clause 7; or         12.1.2 – in the event that you are otherwise in breach of this agreement and such breach is incapable of being remedied, or         12.1.3 – any other agreements between us also being terminated early (unless by reason of our default); then we shall be entitled, in our absolute discretion, to immediately terminate this agreement without any liability or obligation to refund. 12. 2 – In the event of a breach of this agreement which is capable of remedy, rather than immediately terminate pursuant to clause 12.1, we will normally instead suspend the Service and give you an opportunity to put matters right in accordance with clause 12.3. 12.3 – Should we suspend the Service pursuant to clause 12.2 or choose, in our absolute discretion, to suspend rather than enforce our right to terminate pursuant to clause 12.1, then we will tell you what needs to be done before we reinstate it. If such actions are not taken within 7 days of us giving notice, we will thereafter be entitled to immediately terminate this agreement without giving notice and without any liability or obligation to refund any monies paid by you for the Service. 12.4 – Sometimes we may choose to ignore it if you break one of our terms and conditions, or we may choose not to enforce a particular term. But even if we do this, we can still choose to enforce that term or take action because you break that or any other term in the future and ignoring a breach or not enforcing a term does not constitute a waiver of any of our rights under this agreement. 12.5 – We are able to provide you with the Service because we have a contract with the Site owner. If for any reason whatsoever our agreement with the Site owner comes to an end, we are entitled to terminate this agreement immediately on giving notice.

Neither of us will need to get the agreement of any other person in order to end the contract or make any changes to these terms. 13.3 – Each of the paragraphs of these terms operates separately. If any court or relevant authority decides that any of them are unlawful, the remaining paragraphs will remain in full force and effect. 13.4 – If we do not insist immediately that you do anything you are required to do under these terms, or if we delay in taking steps against you in respect of your breaking this contract, that will not mean that you do not have to do those things and it will not prevent us taking steps against you at a later date.
